The newspaper said that it is revealing Edward Snowden’s identity only after he himself requested it.

Snowden has reportedly said  “I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong.”

The Guardian told that Snowden is now in Hong Kong and that he is hoping  to get asylum in Iceland. The NSA has filed a criminal report with the Justice Department in relation to the leaks asking for an investigation to take place.
